Turmeric/Curcumin - Yes or No?
Many sites suggest turmeric (or curcumin) may have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, among other benefits. However, WebMD states:
"Hormone-sensitive condition such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Turmeric might act like estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, don't use turmeric." However, I know several MDs who use it themselves.
Has anyone discussed this with their MD or have any insight to contribute to this question?
